What to Expect

Explore in 16 seat mini-coaches, always taking the scenic route, you have great views through large windows, and you’re free to sample the local tipple without worrying about driving. Our driver-guides are famous for their knowledge, facts, quirky stories, history, and fairy-tales. They truly take you beyond the guidebooks and into your adventure. You make your trip your own. We provide the timetable; and you can choose where you want to eat and which attractions you pay to see. So, if you want to skip a castle and read your book by a mountain view, you can.

A good night’s sleep is often needed for a good day of travel. So we’ve hand-picked three-star to four-star hotels in remote coastal villages, bustling towns, and mountain valleys. Your accommodation is included in the tour price.

Most people can comfortably enjoy our tours, but it’s worth bearing in mind that we often include optional short walks in scenic locations. Please also be aware that many of the old European towns are built on steep hills with cobbled lanes, and you may have to carry your own luggage at times.

We’ve arranged experiences for you on your tour. The ‘included activities’ are already booked and paid for as part of your trip, whereas you can purchase ‘optional activities’ while on your tour. You also have free time in many destinations to pick and choose which attractions you visit.

Pack comfortable shoes for walks up to beautiful views. Carry swimwear and a towel for swimming spots. Your holiday’s more fun when you protect yourself from the sun.

Itinerary
Summits & Shores: Vesuvius, Pompeii & Amalfi

Day 1Rome - Pompeii - Salerno

  • Be humbled and fascinated by the tragic ending of Pompeii
  • Relax and unwind along the Amalfi coastline in Salerno

Arrivederci, Rome! We’re off to see a city that’s famous for a different reason. A sad one, yes, but a memorable one. Our first stop is at the archaeological marvel of Pompeii. Known around the world for its iconic preservation of ancient Roman life, you’ll certainly need a map before you head in… there’s far too much to see.

(Tip: ask staff for a map before entering, which we recommend as it’s easy to get turned around!)

We leave this haunting and humbling destination and journey to where we’ll be staying overnight on this tour: Salerno. Situated quite snuggly along the picturesque Amalfi coastline, Salerno has a spectacular view of the Tyrrhenian Sea. A palm-lined promenade awaits you, dozens of delicious restaurants and bars at your fingertips for your evening tonight. We recommend heading out for sunset if you can manage it and get yourself a view overlooking the sea.

Included Activities: Entrance to Pompeii 

Accommodation: Hotel Plaza or similar, Salerno

Day 2Salerno - Sorrento - Positano - Salerno

  • Gaze out at the Bay of Naples from Sorrento
  • Wander the maze-like (and dream-like) village of Positano
  • Enjoy a gelato and quiet afternoon in Amalfi

This tour is all about breathtaking views… and today you get to see them from the water. In the morning, we hop on the ferry and head to our first destination: Sorrento.

With panoramic views of the Bay of Naples, the iconic silhouette of Mount Vesuvius hiding among the haze ahead, Sorrento’s cliffside setting is the perfect backdrop for a leisurely stroll along the waterfront. Then it’s time to head into Sorrento’s historic Old Town, a true maze of narrow streets packed with shops, cafes, and restaurants. Grab a gelato or perhaps sample a famous Limoncello, a traditional lemon liqueur the region is known for.

That beauty just keeps on coming today as it’s back on the ferry for our next stop. You may already know of Positano, especially if you’re a fan of the movie Under the Tuscan Sun. Today is your chance to explore it. Depending on the time of year, this is the day you may consider whipping out your bathing costume and popping down to the bottom of this cliffside village to take a dip at the main beach of Spiaggia Grande.

If that’s not your thing, grabbing a bite to eat is always recommended in Italy. Always. And there are enough boutique shops, quaint cafes, and local artisans selling their wares that you’ll have plenty of things to do.

Jet-setting back onto the water, you’ll find yourself in the sweet seaside town of Amalfi. There’s something sweet about this town… perhaps it’s the gelato, or the people. Either way, you’re going to love it.

One final ferry ride brings us back to Salerno for the evening. (B)

Included Activities: Ferry between Positano-Amalfi-Salerno

Accommodation: Hotel Plaza or similar, Salerno

Day 3Salarno - Mount Vesuvius - Montecassino Abbey - Rome

  • Strap on your boots and hike to the top of the ancient and dormant Mount Vesuvius
  • Behold the majestic Montecassino Abbey, a working monastery and pilgrimage site

In the morning, you travel north to face Mount Vesuvius. In ancient times, this mountain was considered to be divine and had connections to Jupiter – the god of sky and lightning. Legends say that the giants used to inhabit the volcano, which explained the loud noises and rumbling.

Scary as this sounds, the titan is now dormant. So, put on your sturdy boots and get ready for an unforgettable experience because you can hike up to its crater.

As we make our way back to Rome, don’t think the excitement ends there. Now it’s time to visit the incredible Montecassino Abbey. Perched atop a mountain, it’s a sight to behold. A working monastery and a pilgrimage site, this place was a centre of art, culture, and learning. It was also the scene for a decisive battle near the end of World War II. You have your entrance ticket included and get time to stroll through the cloisters of the monastery and contemplate the turbulent history of war.

We arrive back in Rome in the early evening. (B)

Included Activities: Entrance to Mount Vesuvius and Entrance and tour of Montecassino Abbey
